When we are in thought, we are also creating a sense of isolation as we are in there on our own! This is why it can literally feel like the walls are closing in.
Taking your senses outside, listening, feeling, smelling, as well as seeing, can really change your experience to one of calm, joy, connectedness and mostly ALIVENESS!
Being PRESENT is what feels ALIVE and the way to truly experience wholeness.
Do something for yourself each day. Venture outside!
Many people are looking for their purpose, it is possible to spend years looking outside of yourself to find it when the answer is within the whole time if you learn to start listening to your heart and the Light within...
We are all Light in a physical body. Notice where do you feel your Light?
Now practice focusing your attention there. Breathe in, breathe out, let it speak to you. Listen beyond the words...
The word 'lockdown' carries many negative and repressive connotations both psychologically and energetically.
Our terminology directly impacts on our wellbeing!! Use 'freedom to stay at home' instead..
The uncertainty of our external world is showing the importance of being able to look within to find your own sense of grounding and stability. Many people search outside of themselves for this which inevitably brings the opposite, uncertainty and anxiety.
Your true strength and your Light are within you. Now is the time to Trust yourself.
As many clients I work with will have experienced, I often throw certain words that have huge negative connotations out of the window.
One word that is thrown out often is 'failure.'
Lets imagine that this word does not exist. How would it be to imagine instead that we simply have a range of different experiences with different outcomes?
What a relief!
Practicing this way of viewing life experience allows us to let go of our conditioned ways of thinking and feelings such as shame, guilt and fear and moves us towards inner freedom..
Judgement of ourselves and others ultimately leads to a sense of separateness and shows us just how much we are not accepting of ourselves. Ultimately it is a reflection of what we believe it is ok and not ok to be. This can lead to feeling anxious and fearful, especially in uncertain times.
The way out of judgement is to recognise that at a spiritual level, we are all the same thing. Try to look for similarities in others rather than differences, recognise that whatever you think or feel is ok. It's how you choose to respond and act that is your ultimate gift. Being human is not always having thoughts and feelings that are fluffy and light! What you experience in your inner world is your gift for learning and growing. Be you x
During difficult times such as this current time, we can start to experience really challenging feelings of sadness and helplessness leading to a sense of continuing darkness.. the 'what if' questions begin. "What if it's always like this?" 'What if's' are always negative. I have never been asked, "What if i'm always this happy for the rest of my life?!"
The light in the darkness begins with a sense of hope, hope is accessed by changing our thought process to "this will pass." Hope is the light that is needed to find our way through.. every time you experience a 'What if..' try to replace it with 'this will pass' and by making your experience more temporary, hope can be found..
Good morning to everyone as we approach another week in 'lockdown...'
I have become aware of a theme emerging more clearly through coronavirus. We are being forced to let go of our ego desires, what we want and don't want and how we think things or others should / shouldn't be.
We are placed in a position of having to surrender and accept what is..
Spiritually this is a fantastic opportunity for growth as we let go of our 'ideals' of ourselves and others and allow our true selves to emerge.
Only when we do this can we experience ourselves as spirit which is ultimately true and unconditional love.
When we let this flow through us our lives become a reflection of this and we stop experiencing pain.
The challenge is to recognise that love expresses itself in different, unique ways through everyone and is distorted by the mind, through self doubt and again ideals about how we and others should be.
Letting go of what 'should be' and learning to allow and accept simply by being the love that you are is the learning here..
Letting your light shine is letting yourself as love flow in whatever form.
So let your love flow, take your time now to manifest a life that you love.
I believe this is the ultimate spiritual learning of the virus and life as spirit. No separation, literally heaven on earth, spirit in the body.
I would also like to facilitate helping others to experience this within through a regular group meditation via Zoom. Please message me or post on the group if you are interested in joining and I will schedule something weekly.
I wish you all love in its purest form xx
